Rainiest May on Record (Actually, Third Rainiest)

A story on Michigan Radio a few minutes ago mentioned that this past month was the rainiest May in southeast Michigan on record—8.6 inches (the previous record was apparently 8.4 back in 1943).

It’s sure sunny today, though.

For the time being, anyway. (Always have to throw that disclaimer in.)

Update: According to the Ann Arbor News, May was actually the third-rainiest May in Ann Arbor, based on weather measurements at the North Campus observation site. The record was 10.49 inches in 1943. This May was 7.78. The “rainiest on record” statistic applies to Detroit and Wayne County.
